HOW: The American Heart Association is partnering with Eat Fit NOLA, to help not only draw awareness to the importance of eating healthy but to also help raise dollars that will be invested in groundbreaking research right here in our community. 10% of the sales of each participating restaurants will be donated to the American Heart Association.
WHY: Heart disease a¬ffects everyone. Beating the No. 1 killer of Americans doesn’t take radical fad diets or crazy exercise trends. You can take small steps each day to change how you eat in order to live a long, heart-healthy life.
Many people don’t know that the No. 1 killer of Americans is a largely preventable disease. By committing to live healthy every day, it’s possible to reduce the risk.
National Eating Healthy Day is an opportunity for New Orleans to jump-start a commitment to eating healthy and reducing the risk of heart disease. Because we are a city that loves to eat, we want to educate the community that it is about finding the right balance.
